After Weight Loss
This 48 year-old patient contacted our office after browsing online for surgical options following gastric bypass surgery. Two years prior to coming in for her consultation, she had gastric bypass surgery which allowed her to lose over 150 pounds. Although she had lost so much weight, she was unhappy with the extra skin resulting from the procedure that would not get better with diet and exercise. She scheduled a complimentary consultation with Dr. Chiaramonte to determine what her options were.
During her consultation, Dr. Chiaramonte recommended a circumferential abdominoplasty with a lower body lift to remove the excess skin from her lower body. This procedure would require an incision that went all the way around her waist because she had extra skin that needed to be removed in the front and back of her body. After performing the circumferential tummy tuck, Dr. Chiaramonte explained that he would not only pull the extra skin down, but pull the lower skin up, resulting in smoother skin in the hips and thighs.
Although this is one of the more uncomfortable procedures we offer at our office, this patient was moving around quite easily just two days after surgery. She was very happy with the results from her circumferential tummy tuck and lower body lift that she had subsequent procedures done to correct the other areas of her body that had been affected by her dramatic weightloss.
